Creating the Novel

I’m giving a 7-week novel seminar for Write on the River!

For beginners and mid-career writers wishing to pursue a publishing career. The class is limited to six students and will be held in Wenatchee, WA. Sessions consist of an hour of instruction and an hour’s critique of a student manuscript by the instructor and the other students.

The sessions will be designed to deepen students’ abilities to evaluate their writing with an eye to marketplace considerations as well as compelling fictional elements.

Some of these are useful tools.

DATES AND REQUIREMENTS

DATES: Sessions will be held every other Wednesday, February 12 through May 6.

TIME: 6:30 – 8:30 PM

COST: $300

REQUIREMENTS

  • Please apply to attend. Details here.
  • Membership in Write on the River.
  • 18 years of age or older.
  • Have at least 30 pages of a novel written and ready for critique by February 12.

My new short story collection

I’m so pleased to announce a new collection of science fiction short stories. Most were published in anthologies over the years and are gathered together here for the first time.

In these stories, you can walk the decks of a generation ship, meet gentle and not-so-gentle alien life, ride on the shoulders of an avatar, and enter a new green world where metal bows down to the seeds of time. Available in ebook and paper.

For another of my short story collections, try Dystopia: Seven Dark and Hopeful Tales!
